Klipsch iGroove SXT new
New model now works with latest iPods, has improved audio capabilities

Two years after it was launched, Klipsch has given its iGroove SXT iPod speaker dock a going-over, updating it to work with all the latest iPods and tuning up the amplification and speakers.

The new version, which still sells for £130, now works with models up to and including the iPhone 3G S. It carries the 'Works with iPhone' certification, and will accept and charge any iPod with a 30-pin connector.

A 1000mA rapid charge circuit is used to speed up 'refuelling' of connected player, Klipsch saying this is the first iPod speaker dock on the market with this feature.

There's also an S-video output to allow videos to be shown on a TV.

The iPod Shuffle and other portable players can be connected using an auxiliary input on the rear.

More after the break

A long-throw 6.5cm bass unit and 19mm horn-loaded tweeter is used for each channel, and the unit now employs biamplification for less distortion, plus revised bass port tuning.

The iGroove SXT is available now direct from Klipsch, and from Amazon and other leading retailers.
